Signs of the Times for Fri, 10 Feb 2006

Signs Editorial:

by Missy Comley Beattie 9 Feb 06

When the going gets tough, the president talks terror, terror, terror. Does this man have any credibility? Only with those who think that Osama and Saddam are one and the same and, of course, the people who still believe that Iraq attacked us on September 11, 2001. Yes, that's the answer. Oh, and the scared.

Actually, I don't buy this foiled plot Bush announced today--that al Qaeda planned to fly a plane into the Library Tower. And one of the many reasons is because he had to read it to us. If there were any truth to his success at preventing a disaster, he would have been capable of telling it.

When I speak against this war and the lies of the Bush Administration that took us to Iraq where my nephew died, I don't have to look down at a piece of paper, look up, stumble, and, then, look down again. This boob didn't even give us the correct name of the tower. He called it the "Liberty Tower." If the plot were true, he'd sure as hell know what tower because it would have been discussed in the inner sanctum of the White House over and over. But George knows he's in trouble. His polls are down and he's using the same tired trick, this time with a little twist of creativity. One of his handlers should've told him to memorize it though. I guess Karl wasn't there to help plan this tactic and then stamp it with his seal of approval

Please, America, wake up. Bush is the boogeyman.

Right now, though, he's the one who's sweating. Jacko Abramoff says he was invited to the Crawford Compound, Republicans are abandoning the ship, and 'You're-doin'-a- heckuva-good-job-Brownie is ready to reveal his side of the Katrina disaster. "Hear that, George. Brownie's going to sing about the correspondence he was receiving from you while so many people lost everything."

And George W. Butcher was unable to escape his truth-teller tormentors at Coretta Scott King's funeral--all those luminaries who skewered him and his agenda. He shouldn't have been allowed to be in the presence of this great woman's coffin since every move he makes is a loud slap in the face to her ideals and dreams for this country.

We all know what we can expect from George, Dick, Karl, Rummy, and Condolethal in the months leading up to the 2006 elections--Bush will be out there reading about more terrorist plots he prevented, thus, saving thousands of lives. Oh, and he'll trot Laura out to talk about how focused he is. But those of us with good memories know he focuses best on biking and vacationing. Because that's exactly what he was doing after warnings about 9/11 crossed his desk. We're also thinking that Saddam, the one we've caught and spent a fortune in human life and money to pull out of that hole, is not the person who attacked us. Where's Osama? Could it be that Bush doesn't want to nab him because it's better to use him to scare us when the doo-doo is hitting George's fan and the impeachment word is becoming more than a whisper?

Things aren't looking good for the president and he's showing signs of wear and tear. It's about time.

How many lies have to be exposed before America says, "No more?" How many times does Bush get to tell us he's protecting us before there's a huge chorus screaming, "You must think we're stupid?"

And, finally, during all this turmoil over the Muhammad cartoons and Bush arrogantly says, "Stop the violence," isn't it time for Americans to say, "But, George, you started it?"

He did, you know. When George W. invaded Iraq, he ignited a fire that's engulfed our world.
